I've never had a Pumpkin Curry, but I imagine it tastes like this one! Eating out is a challenge with my dietary restrictions, so this recipe (like most of them), is a Thai-inspired American fusion that's so easy to make and bursting with flavor! The simplicity of the recipe, easy-to-find ingredients, and general tastiness will make it one you'll make over and over!
Here are a few tips for this quick week-night Pumpkin Curry recipe:
Get all the ingredients ready first!
I often like to prep as I go, but this recipe moves quickly once you start. I like to prep with an audiobook and then blast music while dance-cooking.
Add the spices and shelf-stable items to your pantry.
This recipe is so easy to whip up in a pinch, and while I chose this vegetable combination carefully, it tastes nice with a variety of others. With the spices, coconut milk, and pumpkin on hand, you can whip this beauty up with little planning.
